WHO CCs for Health Promotion

In February 2006, WHO and Health Promotion Board of Singapore (HPB), organized the first meeting of WHO Collaborating Centres for Health Promotion with the aim of making full use of the expertise of the centres and strengthen collaboration with all key partners to advance health at the local, national, regional and international levels.

The centres were requested to assist WHO in the implementation of the Programme of Work for 2006-2007 and the Bangkok Charter for Health Promotion in a Globalized World which has been finalized and adopted at the 6th Global Conference on Health Promotion held in Bangkok in 2005.
